In the Community

 

Regather delivers a wide range of community projects that tackle priority issues, including jobs & training, a strong local economy, community events & festivals, low carbon living, healthy eating, active lifestyles, local heritage and community identity.

Engage with Local Residents

Situated in the heart of Sharrow on Club Garden Road the Regather Co-Operative has welcomed people of all ages from all backgrounds to share ideas and inspiration for our new co-operative approach.

Sell Goods & Services

Our unique approach to stimulating co-operative enterprise enables Regather to trade a wide range of locally produced goods & services that respond to and meet the needs of the local community.

Build Collective Resources

The co-operative values that underpin the work of Regather have created useful resources available for affordable community and co-operative enterprise use. Space available includes a materials workshop, catering kitchen, retail shop, office/managed workspace, studio space, event equipment and a van.

Improve the Built Environment

Regather is based in the Horn Handle Works, a Grade II listed building on Club Garden Road / Broome Close. By working closely with the landlord, local authorities and skilled trades people the re-use and re-development of this building as a community-focused centre for co-operative enterprise was achieved in November 2012. Regather is now working with the landlord, local authority and legal advisors towards a long term leasehold on the building and community use of the surrounding green space and street.
